Introduced in early the nineteen nineties, the midsize GS series was Lexus' first make an effort to develop a sport-oriented luxury sedan. As the first-generation model did not win much critical acclaim, successive redesigns place the GS much nearer to its European rivals.
Powerful engine, plenty of safety technology on-board, available Mark Levinson audio system, blend of both luxury and sport.
Navigation system bundled with controls that work better with knobs and buttons; doesn't communicate with the driver enough given the sporting mission of the car.
For the 2003 GS 430, Lexus has made the heated front seats, moonroof, CD changer and leather upholstery standard equipment.
